Update, well sorta. My Berserk statue collection grew the past few months and it forced me to use both glass cabinets for Berserk only. Left with the dilemma of "where to display my PVC's", I looked to my CD rack in the bedroom and came up with a plan.

LOVE IT. It's so symmetrical!!!! And organized.

Domo arigato, Turkitage~kun ^_^! It took an entire afternoon to sort things out in the glass cabinets and then put the PVC's in the rack after clearing out my CDs and LPs *sigh* ... *holds his back in agony*. Thankfully it's been a few months since I ordered a PVC I really wanted (last purchase was prolly around the time of Otakon). I'd love to get Perona's POP DX version, in time.

Some Wonderfest pics I took  :beast:


Thanks for your picture Dr.Legato !!! Saito is my favourite character in Kenshin and I didn't know they would do a figure of him ! In addition, the sculpt is really great !
I'm very excited and I will buy it for sure ! :ubik:

Already ordered these:

Who did you use to pre-order those? I hate pre-ordering because you have to be awake at the exact time they come out before they show up as Sold Out on the site. That's usually my experience with Hobby Search.

Hobbysearch sold out right when I had one in my cart (forgot my password, not so smart) so I used HLJ for Sanji, sold out within a minute, I was really really lucky!
couldnt get on amiami like always, but they also sold out in 5 minutes or so, the fastest pre-order sellout I ever seen...
Zoro I have on amiami and I have Lufy/Nami and the admirals on local pre-order.

Saito should be online at around 2-3 PM Japan local time, so for most of you probably tonight at around 9ish. Though I doubt they will sell out quickly, as those other figures have proven to be easy to get after release even.

Oddly enough despite loving Berserk I don't have any Berserk stuff because I didn't have enough for the 20th Anniversary statue at the time and I prefer bigger collectibles like that.

Here's my customized HT DX Joker with a head sculpt by a buddy of mine, the great Bobby C with silicone skin and real glass eyes all in 1:6 scale. Was very limited so I'm glad I got one




My second best fig is the Dude from The Big Lebowski which was custom made by Rainman.














Custom Dicaprio by Feng with totem from Inception (bad pic, sorry)

Legolas 1:6 with custom Darren Carnall head (still working on adding more skin tones)


I miss this fig (sold it to a friend) but might be getting it back



Been working on a custom head to replace this one for Dante




I really wish I can still get that Zoro somewhere. Do you guys know of a One Piece site or something that tells you when new stuff is going to go up for pre-order since they sell out so fast? I'm actually new to One Piece so I don't know these things.

Love the Mononoke, congratulations on your pieces. You seem like you put a lot of thought into what you collect which I respect. The Joker one is very realistic, though I'm a bit sick of seeing Heath's Joker at this point it will only age gracefully I imagine. Same with Kenshin and Cloud.

Now get some damn Berserk!!  :iva:

About this Zoro, I'm sure when the release gets closer you'll have another chance of buying him.
Just check sites like hlj and amiami regularly.

Wow.  That Joker is insane.  It looks more like a cosplay than a figure.  I'm impressed.

Yeah, I thought it was really him in a few of those. I guess that means somebody did a good job!

BloodTalon, FULL MARKS on Kaneda's bike! That's super hard to find, with all 3 box components as a full set. Do you have the Tetsuo figure with the changeable head/ metal arm?

For a second I thought it was the MMS DX 1 Joker but then his hair looked so much better! Congrats on the customized Joker, it's pretty good. Did you also get changes done to the Policeman version?

Thanks guys. I love seeing all the awesome stuff you guys posted so I really wanted to contribute.

Thank you. :) You're right that I do put a lot of thought into my collection. I do have more stuff that I'll post later, but I like a lot of variety which can get very expensive so I try to pick a handful of higher-end pieces of usually only my favorite characters.

I use to have the first Guts pvc statue. Wish I still had it, but at least I have a couple of the mini figs lol. I want the ultimate Guts in my collection one day.

Nice stuff Bloodtalon :ubik:

Thank you and thanks for the advice. :) Is it rare to see another chance for these awesome OP statues?

Thanks guys. I might be getting something much cooler that's also Ledger related and from the same artist. Bobby is my favorite sculptor out there and a great guy. His main focus is 1:1 statues, but this was his first 1:6 attempt.

Thanks man. I sold a lot of my figs to get Kaneda and bike, but it was worth it imo.

Actually you're right. It's the DX Joker, but the head sculpt has been replaced. Everything else is still the DX.

Unfortunately Tetsuo doesn't come with an extra arm like I thought he would, just switchable hands. Since he's a Medicom fig, he also breaks easily which is also unfortunate, but Medicom said they'll fix mine (was my first time reposing him since I got him too). It's just annoying having to pay for shipping.

Just keep checking sites like HLJ one month before releasedate and if you got money to spare, after release you can always buy at mandarake.
This Zoro will be worth it for sure ^^

I have my Tetsuo leaning against the wall on top of my Akira manga volumes because I can't get him to stand properly without feeling secure about him not falling down from the book shelf hah. He's very top-heavy, so yeah. Again, congrats on having a complete set in terms of owning Tetsuo, Kaneda and Kaneda's bike. The bike is costly indeed >_<'. I still haven't received the 3rd box for the bike and it's incomplete. I'm looking for sellers who'd sell me just that 1 box *sigh*.

Sounds like a plan. I'll be on the lookout. :)

Thanks man. There are three boxes for the bike? I have the box with the actual bike and the extra parts box, but what's the third one?

Also, I forgot to answer your question about the Police Joker. I sold that part of the set off because I needed some money towards the silicone head (was very expensive). I thought it was ok. Didn't look enough like Heath to me though. I'm very picky when it comes to likenesses.

Pre-ordered them both this weekend. I want to see Seijuro Hiko next, he's my favorite character other than Saito and Shishio.

Nice dude! I haven't seen Kaneda on a chair before, it looks pretty cool. I like your One Piece collection a lot, most of them are Figure Arts figures right?
